Once per week, we’ll give you a list of notable Android devices that received updates over the course of seven days. This can be anything from a minor carrier update, a security patch update, or a major system overhaul like Android N. We’ll give you an idea of when to expect the update as well as what’s new in that particular update. Access our ‘Droid Updates’ Weekly Series from the main menu or search “Droid Updates.”

OnePlus has pushed yet another update to OnePlus 3 units. This one updates the handset to the latest version of OxygenOS (3.2.2). The update has started rolling out over-the-air and brings a ton of bug fixes and performance improvements. Additionally, several new features made the cut. The first one is improved notification management in ‘doze.’ This should fix issues associated with the battery saving feature. Next is a minor fix that many users experienced with the alert slider. Users will no longer have issues switching to silent mode. OnePlus has also put in a fix addressing the fingerprint scanner problem where it kept activating while in one’s pocket. Among other new features are an NFC toggle in quick settings and improved noise cancellation when video recording. Lastly, the update includes an update to the 4K video recording codec and this month’s security patches. The update itself comes in a medium-sized package. It’ll will make no changes to your personal settings, nor will it reset your device. You can try triggering the update in your device settings under ‘About’ and ‘check for new software updates.’ The update is not mandatory, but we strongly recommend it, especially if you’ve experienced problems with any of the issues listed above. For further installation instructions and details on what’s new, hit the source link(s) below.

LG G5 and/or LG V10 owners on Verizon got a new update this week. However, each update is different in its own way. The update for LG G5 brings a new feature, or an old feature I should say, in that of an app drawer. LG must have decided to bring it back due to all the criticism it received from fans and reporters across the globe.  You can enable it by holding on your homescreen or heading into settings and choosing ‘home screen.’ Also new with the update are some redesigned menus and improvements made to LG’s health and fitness app  The updated software version is VS98713A. It comes in at a medium-sized package. As for the LV V10, it received a minor tune-up update, far smaller than the G5’s update. Included in it are some Wi-Fi Calling fixes and menu design changes. The updated software version is VS99023A. Each update will make no changes to your personal settings, nor will it reset your device. You can try triggering the update from your device settings under ‘About’ and ‘check for new software updates.’ Neither is mandatory, but we recommend getting it, as with most updates. For further installation instructions and details on what’s new, hit the source link(s) below.

It seems as if both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge on AT&T are getting two separate updates this week. Like Google and others, Samsung pushes monthly updates over-the-air to some of its smartphones and tablets. This monthly update includes security patches, keeping you prone from viruses. The update itself is a small package and makes no changes to the look or feel of your device, nor does it reset your device. The update is not mandatory, but we strongly recommend downloading and installing it as soon as you can for your own safety. This typically takes a week to reach all compatible devices. You can try triggering it by going into your device settings under ‘About’ and ‘check for new software updates.’ For further installation instructions, hit the source link(s) below.
